63% Arrow: Season 7 - Training Day (TV Episode) Exactly how they'd integrate into a field where bad guys, you know, have rights and stuff?

70% Arrow: Season 7 - Star City Slayer (TV Episode) Circled back to Oliver's time in prison to resolve a dangling plot thread, but the real shock came in the flash-forward story -- and that part of the season just got a whole lot more interesting. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% The Flash: Season 5 - Memorabilia (TV Episode) Sure, this one was built largely around a gimmick - but there's nothing wrong with a gimmick if you actually do it right. Thankfully, Team Flash absolutely nailed it with this one. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% Arrow: Season 7 - Past Sins (TV Episode) The latest episode of Arrow had a whole lot of moving parts -- and some worked better than others. That said, Oliver's story deftly paid off a plot point that had been years in the making. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Hell No, Dolly! (TV Episode) As usual, Legends of Tomorrow manages to tell a heartbreaking, emotional story juxtaposed with a bizarro insane adventure to tie it all together. You know, classic Legends. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% Arrow: Season 7 - The Slabside Redemption (TV Episode) This week brought us no B-stories, and no flash forward saga -- and was all the better for it. The final story of Oliver's prison stay deserved all the focus, and it handled the pressure well. Easily one of the show's best episodes of the season. - Syfy Wire EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
93% The Flash: Season 5 - All Doll'd Up (TV Episode) The story of Rag Doll...made for a visually distinct case of the week on its own, but most importantly served as a parallel for what Iris has been going through ever since her future daughter Nora burst onto the scene. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Wet Hot American Bummer (TV Episode) The gimmick this week is summer camp, and though this show always has a bit of fun with its time periods, sending the entire crew to camp as a group of counselors made for a fun set-up. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 7 - The Demon (TV Episode) Having Laurel, Felicity and Dinah team up this episode was a great use of the extended cast, and it's exactly what they've needed to humanize Earth-2 Laurel along the way. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Dancing Queen (TV Episode) Taking a punk rocking Brit like Constantine back to London in 1977 could've gone a lot of ways, but Legends of Tomorrow took the story in quite possibly the most brutal and surprising direction possible. And it was pretty great. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2018
92% Arrow: Season 7 - Level Two (TV Episode) The episode unpacks a lot about this future, and it becomes clear very quickly that Star City has absolutely fallen apart. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2018
80% Arrow: Season 4 - Taken (TV Episode) For an episode seemingly built around the live-action introduction of Vixen (which rocked, by the way), "Taken" pulled no punches in regard to the major story arcs of the season. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
100% The Flash: Season 5 - News Flash (TV Episode) Ever since showing up in 2018, Nora has made no secret about her problems with her mother -- and now we finally know why she resents Iris so much. Turns out, she has a decent reason for all those cold shoulders. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
86% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Witch Hunt (TV Episode) Behind all the trope-twisting and gags, "Witch Hunt" managed to slyly slip in some real emotion. Something this show is getting better and better at by the year. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% Arrow: Season 7 - Crossing Lines (TV Episode) It might be with Argus instead of Team Arrow, but it's always good to see Curtis get a chance to flaunt his super-geeky creations. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2018
100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - The Virgin Gary (TV Episode) It's been a long and hot summer, but don't worry, Legends of Tomorrow is still just as silly and self-referential as you remember. - Syfy Wire EDIT

87% The Flash: Season 5 - The Death of Vibe (TV Episode) We're still in the early days of the season, but no time has been wasted setting up the impending threat of new big bad Cicada -- and he's even inspired the team to bring in a shiny new Wells to join the team. - Syfy Wire EDIT

100% Arrow: Season 7 - The Longbow Hunters (TV Episode) Star City has a few new big bads, and they made their presence known in a big way this week -- and it all happened as the remnants of Team Arrow are arguably as fractured as ever. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2018
100% The Flash: Season 5 - Blocked (TV Episode) The Flash wasted no time introducing it's new big bad, after a fleeting tease at the end of the season premiere. The team is now fully aware of Cicada -- and he certainly looks like a formidable new villain. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 7 - Inmate 4587 (TV Episode) It is giving the rest of the cast a chance to stake out some of the A-story focus, so hopefully they can continue to find a good balance between those elements moving forward. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2018
100% The Flash: Season 5 - Nora (TV Episode) Telling this type of story is a bold move for a show that has occasionally fallen into the ruts of superhero storytelling, and telling it right in the heart of Barry and Iris' recent marriage is all the more exciting. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2018
58% Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2018) It doesn't blow the MCU status quo out of the water, but the action here is capable and entertaining - and they keep the set pieces loose and fun in a way that feels like a good fit for this character and world. - Syfy Wire EDIT

93% Supergirl: Season 3 - Crisis on Earth-X, Part 1 (TV Episode) It makes for some amazing fights, sure, but it's also one of the best "What If?" stories they've pulled off in the Arrowverse. - Syfy Wire EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
90% The Flash: Season 3 - Finish Line (TV Episode) H.R. has been annoying at times, though he's had his moments along the way. But this episode was his greatest. - Syfy Wire EDIT
